ResMed AirCurve 10 ASV BiPAP Setup
Step 1: Unboxing and Inspection
Begin by carefully unboxing your ResMed AirCurve 10 ASV. Take a moment to inspect the components, ensuring everything is present and undamaged. You should find the device, a humidifier (if applicable), tubing, and a mask. If anything seems amiss, please contact your healthcare provider.
Step 2: Assembling the Device
Connect the tubing to the device, ensuring a secure fit. If you have a humidifier, attach it to the device and fill it with distilled water. Place the device on a stable surface within reach of your bed. Make sure there are no obstructions around the device to allow proper airflow.
Step 3: Mask Fitting
Choosing the right mask is crucial for comfort and efficacy. If you're unsure, consult with your healthcare provider. Once you've selected a mask, adjust the straps to achieve a snug but not overly tight fit. Ensure a proper seal by adjusting the mask while the device is running. If you experience any discomfort, readjust the mask until it feels secure and comfortable.
Step 4: Powering Up and Settings Adjustment
Connect the device to a power source and turn it on. The AirCurve 10 ASV may prompt you to input specific settings prescribed by your healthcare provider. Follow the instructions on the screen, and don't hesitate to reach out to your healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns about the settings.
Step 5: Start and Enjoy a Restful Sleep
With everything set up, lay back and allow the ResMed AirCurve 10 ASV to do its job. The therapy may feel different initially, but trust that it's designed to optimize your breathing patterns. If you encounter any issues or have persistent discomfort, contact your healthcare provider promptly.
